Abstract:

The 711th Human Performance Wing recently undertook the Aircrew Sizing Survey of 2011 ACSS. This survey is intended to replace the 1967 USAF Aircrew Anthropometric Survey, which has been the only actual USAF anthropometric dataset for aircrew product design. The 1967 data are more than 45 years old and represented male aircrew, consequently statistically created samples from more recent non-USAF military datasets have been used by the USAF for the design of protective equipment, and cockpits. The results of comparisons show that the aircrew population is growing heavier and exhibiting some increased measurements related to increased mass.
